See Lady Gaga’s 24k gold wheelchair!

Lady Gaga, 26, is healing from a recent hip surgery, and she’s doing it in style!

The singer is rolling around in this one-of-a-kind luxury wheelchair, complete with a calf leather seat, a leather canopy, and a 24K gold frame. The chair was designed by luxury brand Mordekai.

Designer Borochov said in a statement that he created the ‘chariot’ in a week and took inspiration from a throne.

‘I certainly wasn’t expecting that phone call and have never done a wheelchair but am always up for a challenge and was thrilled to create what I affectionately dubbed the Chariot, a chair fit only for a queen,’ he explained.

Gaga was pictured reclining in the plush chair in a photo posted online by Terry Richardson.

With her blonde hair curled and dressed in what appeared to be a dressing gown and flat shoes, she was taking a break from her usual eye-catching clothing.

Last month Gaga posted a picture of the chair on Twitter introducing it to her followers as ‘Emma’.

It came after the Bad Romance singer was been forced to cancel all 25 remaining U.S. dates, after suffering a severe injury to her right hip that had been causing her chronic pain.

She thanked her fans for their support.

‘As they wheeled me into surgery today, I thought about all of your pain and perseverance, your unique family situations, school environments, health issues, homelessness, identity struggles – sometimes you are so brave that it terrifies me,’ she wrote.

‘So I thought to myself, I’m alive, I’m living my dream, and this is just a bump in the road. I’m grateful because this is temporary, and for some it is not.’

I mean if you can afford the chair…. why not, right? (Although I’m sure she didn’t pay for it…)

Sarah Jessica Parker opens up about the damage heels have done to her feet

Sarah Jessica Parker looks beautiful here! Don’t mind my shock, usually I’m not a huge fan of Sarah’s pictorials. I think her makeup is way too heavy normally, and her styling is just bizarre. But in these new pictures – she looks really great. The pictures are from Net-a-Porter’s digital fashion magazine. In the attached interview, she opens up about Hillary Clinton, how Aldo shoes killed her ankles, her twin daughters and more. Here you go:

Aldo shoes killed heels for her: “For ten or so years, I literally ran in heels. I worked 18-hour days and never took them off. I wore beautiful shoes, some better made than others, and never complained. But then I did ‘I Don’t Know How She Does It’, and I was very thoughtful about my whole wardrobe and said you know, [Kate Reddy] could not afford really good shoes, she would go to Nine West or Aldo. So I got shoes from there and the bottom of the shoes aren’t leather, they are plastic, so I slipped a couple times, twisted my ankle. I went to a foot doctor and he said, ‘Your foot does things it shouldn’t be able to do. That bone there… You’ve created that bone. It doesn’t belong there.’ The moral of the story is, the chickens are coming home to roost. It’s sad, because my feet took me all over the world, but eventually they were like, ‘You know what, we are really tired, can you just stop – and don’t put cheap shoes on us?’”

Her twin daughters Tabitha and Marion (3 years old) fight over clothes: “Oh my God… I don’t know what happens in other homes, but in mine, it’s very, very different and much harder. I probably deserve it – I should have to deal with girls. The emotions run so much higher. The arguing about clothes? I am stunned. We have a whole fashion system to try and override the fighting.”

What’s in her closet?: “I wear seven percent of what’s in my closet. I have more pants, more jeans and more corduroys than I ever imagined I’d own in my life. I have dresses I keep, and I go, ‘Better not throw that out because I’m gonna have an occasion’. But the occasion never presents itself and this weekend I am cleaning it all out. I said to my husband, ‘It’s going to be an echo chamber in there.’”

She’s nice: “Even if there’s someone I don’t like, I can’t bear to bitch about them. And I can’t stand the proliferation of reality shows where women are mean to each other. I can’t believe the way they talk to each other, the names they call each other.”

She wants Hillary to be President: The women she looks up to are “cultured, very curious. They see everything, they read everything, they’re very interested in the world.” Right now, she has high hopes of seeing America’s first female President. “I’m a huge fan of Hillary Clinton. Her curiosity is so compelling to me, her desire to listen and learn and travel. Personally, and I mean this with all sincerity, I will be very, very sad if she doesn’t choose to run. I think she has so much to offer and is equipped to do it well, to be thoughtful, reasonable, strong, authoritative, empathetic. The conventionally female parts of her can partner well with the parts of her that are considered not as female to make a great leader.”

I’m with her on the heels thing. I’m almost 6′ tall as it is – and heels just HURT me. I’ve never been a fan. I even wore flats to my wedding.

As for the Hillary thing – do you think America would vote in a woman?

Charlize Theron launching her own line of jeans?

Charlize Theron is apparently in talks to design her own line of jeans. If you ask me – it sounds like an amazing idea! Charlize always looks gorgeous, it doesn’t matter what she’s wearing. If you ask me, she could wear a burlap sack – and make it look hot.

Theron, 37, and stylist Leslie Fremar are planning a Theron Jeans line with denim brands, The Hollywood Reporter reports.

And extra good news for her fans: the line would reportedly be sold for reasonable prices in mass-market stores. The Snow White and the Huntsman actress’ rep, however, told The Hollywood Reporter that she couldn’t confirm the project.

When it comes to style, Theron is all about keeping it simple these days. The single mother to son Jackson, 13 months, recently shaved her head for a role in the upcoming Mad Max film.

“It’s great,” she told E! News earlier in March. “It’s so low maintenance, and having a kid, you need as much time as you can get.”

I’m excited to see what happens with this!

Fashion Disasters on a night out?

Fashion disasters on a night out

Have you ever had a problem with what you’re wearing on a night out? We’ve all been there! Even if we spend hour after hour choosing the right outfit for a nightclub, dinner at a fancy restaurant or even for a few drinks at the local bar, there’s always a chance that something could go wrong which might wreck our whole evening.

Oops!

When you go on a night out, no matter what your plans are or where you spend the next few hours, you’ll want to make sure you don’t embarrass yourself in any way. Sadly, there are a few things that could happen which might be beyond our control, but to avoid suffering a fashion disaster, there are a few things you could do:

Choose the right outfit

When you’re ‘glamming up’ for your big night out, make sure you choose the right clothes. Something that’s too long, too small or not comfortable enough can ruin your night, causing just about any embarrassing accident like tripping over after having a few drinks or tearing a hole in your expensive new dress.

Make sure what you wear looks good. Something too bright and garish or frumpy could be disastrous, as you want to make heads turn for the right reason. Think about wearing something stylish and understated, as that will mean you’re less likely to have an unfortunate yet comical accident!

Something a little different…

If you want to make a statement or just dress for fun, you don’t have to restrict yourself to just wearing a cocktail dress or something similar. Why not do something different and consider fancy dress, especially if you’re going on a hen night?

You could go dressed as a tennis player, doctor, nurse or, if you’re feeling really adventurous, perhaps go as a schoolgirl if you’re heading to a nightclub! I’ve tried that before, and loved every minute of going out in a fancy dress outfit, as did all my friends!

“How did that happen?”

Some fashion-related mishaps are more common than others, and only tend to happen on a night out. A survey by ladbrokes bingo of women across the UK revealed a few interesting results. Here are some of the most shocking:

  • 45% said they spilled or dropped their drink on their outfit.
  • 30% of women said they ‘laddered’ their tights!
  • 26% of women owned up to having toilet tissue stuck on their shoe!
  • 7% admitted they had their dress tucked into their underwear!
  • 6% of women spoke about their shoes or heel of their shoes breaking, which sounds like the most embarrassing thing that could possibly happen on a night out!
